But it is best to be prepared, especially during the ongoing pandemic," said Denise Treadwell, President of AirMed International. "If you run into difficulties on your next trip, IAG and AirMed are perfectly positioned to help when a medical emergency arises. As the Coronavirus pandemic has wreaked havoc on the world, we have adjusted our procedures and practices to meet clients' evolving requirements."
